Surpassing AC/DC and The Smashing Pumpkins, Miley Cyrus took a wrecking ball to her competition and gained the No. 1 rock album in the US.
The 7th studio album to come from Cyrus debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, selling over 60,000 units and further cementing 2020 as the year for solo front-woman.
The former pop sensation joins Fiona Apple, Hayley Williams, and Alanis Morissette as the fourth solo woman to top the Billboard charts this year – the first time since 2012 that four women have done so, according to Billboard.
It’s official. #PlasticHearts is the #1 rock record in the country. My mind is blown and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank YOU to every creative collaborator involved on this project! If one person was missing I would not be writing this message. pic.twitter.com/rvVuSO7L5v

Sporting a new mullet, a punk attitude, and now a chart-topping rock album, Miley Cyrus is definitely distancing herself far away from her Hannah Montana origins, showing the critics that she has grit and teeth – with one hell of a bite.
